Karen Bernard

As a seasoned real estate professional, I recognize and value the trust my clients place in me and I strive every day to exceed their expectations.

With nearly a decade of experience successfully delivering results for my clients and helping them make the right decisions with their biggest investments of buying, selling, or real estate investing. I believe in being engaged with clients by providing current real estate market statistics and information, and I am in touch with today’s innovative use of technology.

I keep up with real estate industry standards and changes by participating in seminars and also acquiring various real estate designations that currently include: Seniors Real Estate Specialist “SRES” and Accredited Senior Agent “ASA” as I thoroughly enjoy working with seniors.

I love my community and I am proud to work with Re/Max Hallmark Chay Realty Brokerage, the #1 Brokerage in Simcoe County for 25 years.

I also love to offset work with outdoor adventure. You may see me escaping on my Harley or my Motorhome / RV to reset my focus and attention to detail.

I am active member of the Toronto Real Estate Board (TREB), Barrie Real Estate Board (BDAR), Canadian Real Estate Associate (CREA), Real Estate Council of Ontario (RECO), and Ontario Real Estate Association (OREA).
